New Cubicle Decor

After moving away from my amazing window cube a few months ago, I know I needed bright and fun decor to bring light into my corner. I chose a yellow and light blue sunshine theme and found the perfect items to make me feel sunkissed all day long. 

I painted a large wooden crate from Michael's yellow and decorated it with plants, Pop Vinyls, and a few odds and ends from the Michael's decor isle. 

I found my computer background in a Google search and added my favorite "pets" to jazz up the monitors. 

My favorite part of my decor is the right side! I won this plant during a work event and I picked up a large planner to keep track of my daily to-do lists from Amazon. 

I painted a medium crate blue and found this adorable sunshine frame in the frame section. To finish it off I added another plant, a few stuffed animals, an organizer from Target, a Universal Studios mug, and this amazing sun art from Target. 

While at Target, I found this awesome cloud shelf! How perfect is this?! I added some decorations from Michael's including this paper flower bouquet. 

Behind me sits two frame collages I made using the $1 wooden frames and ribbon. I bought the pallet from Michael's and painted an unfinished monogram from Etsy. 

Now my corner cube doesn't feel so drab!

Dad's Creative Birthday

For my Dad's birthday, I surprised him with a fun painting class! The studio teaches you to paint while you sip on wine and meet new friends! 

I chose a sunset painting for us and they decorated Dad's workstation for this birthday!

Our lovely table mates! 

Dad adding the finishing touches to his masterpiece.

My beautiful creation.

During the class we took a break to have a dancing competition.

The entire class :)

The next night, we took Dad for a family dinner at a Brazilian Steakhouse.

Here is to another great year!

Wine Not Paint?

As a bonding exercise, my team went to our local Painting with a Twist for a fun class! 

This was my first painting class since college and I enjoyed every minute of it!  Painting with a Twist refers to their classes as "fun art not fine art" so they are perfect for every level!  While painting, guests are encouraged to bring their own wine to sip on.

For this class, we painting wine glasses on a pastel background.  Here is my work of art in progress!

We were challenged to post a selfie with our canvas to social media. The person who received the most "likes" could win a prize!

While we waited for our backgrounds to dry, we enjoyed the studio's clever photobooth!

My finished piece and my social media prize!  I received over 25 "likes" while painting!

The glass says "Wine is the answer, what was the question?"

Everyone was encouraged to put their own twist on the project.

Such a fun experience with my co-workers! 

Our First Volcano Bay Weekend

Since Volcano Bay, Universal's water theme park, opened a few weeks ago, J and I have been itching to go!  We decided to brave the storms and go for two days!  

Day One

On Saturday we checked into our hotel, changed into our bathing suits and made our way to Volcano Bay for the first time ever!

This park is beyond beautiful!

We had an amazing day exploring, riding thrill rides, and relaxing.

 Day Two

 We were so excited to go back but we slept much later then expected!  We made a quick pit stop at Target so I could pick up a new bathing suit and then headed back to the park!  We had about an hour and a half before the rain started but during that time, I rode my first water ride and liked it!

Before we left, we stopped at the bar for another drink. We chose different ones from yesterday but loved them all!

We love Volcano Bay!
